    My wife and I had chickens some 30+ years ago. We just purchased a few acres, and are looking to build a coop and get a few dual purpose birds, as well as some Cornish for meet purposes. We are just getting back into all of this, and we are over 30 years older, so we will take it a bit slowly this first year. I thought I'd come here looking for advice and ideas. We didn't have this type of thing back then, as far as I can remember anyway. I'll be looking for some advice concerning good breeds and see if there are any plans for chicken coops right off the bat.
